INFORMATION REGARDING FLU VACCINE DELAY FROM PUBLIC HEALTH ENGLAND
This year, the WHO delayed its recommendation on one of the strains of the virus, by a period of four weeks, from February, into March. The WHO's final recommendation for vaccine manufacturers - to include the use of the A/Kansas/14/2017 (H3N2) virus strain, in response to a recent increase in the proportion of viruses detected which would not be effectively dealt with by its existing vaccine strains - was published on the 21 March 2019. We understand from manufacturers that the delayed WHO recommendation on vaccine strain has had an impact on their vaccine supply. Sanofi Pasteur have indicated they plan to phase some of the deliveries of the inactivated Quadrivalent influenza vaccines (QIV) for those at risk and under 65 years, with some vaccines being delivered by the end of November ahead of when the flu season usually starts.
Welcome to New Road Surgery
Since the foundation of the NHS in 1948, the New Road premises have been used, without interruption, as a medical practice. Dr Cheetham retired in June 2018 after 30 years at New Road Surgery, many local residents will remember Dr Mike Cooper, Dr Roy Glover, and a few may remember Dr Nathan from the post war years when the practice was founded. The complexity of medical treatments may have changed, but the ethos of traditional General Practice continues unabated.
We have a friendly, professional and dedicated team, still providing the level of care that has been a hallmark of the practice for so many years.
